I *think* the comment meant she thought you had your baby tied to your chest with a bedsheet and that was "ghetto" or what my brother calls low budget. :LOL Love the DDDDC and that sling is so pretty, I don't think it looks like a sheet at all and I have a sling I made from a sheet so I know what I'm talking about .

I think you hit the nail on the head there about what she probably meant. In which case, who cares if you are wearing a sheet, as long as it is a functional sheet that holds your baby close to you!

What a great way to handle that situation. If they had something to say they should have just asked you or shut up rather than following you around making comments. I've been lucky that most people have given me positive comments about my pouches and wraps but I do hear whisperings here and there that I'm not sure are positive or negative. I just try to ignore them and tell myself that the mamas who say stuff are usually either wearing Eddie Bauer/Snuglis that look WAY hot and uncomfortable or trying to lug a stroller onto a train or bus.

Yes, I should have told her how much my sheet cost :LOL

For who asked, it was this hotsiling, the prettiest in my opinion

Hey! I have the same ghetto sheet! :LOL
It's my favorite!

I guess it would be less ghetto if your babe were in a stroller crying. :

Today at the doctors office a lady asked what kind of sling I was wearing and I almost said "Ghetto Sheet"! Thank goodness I caught myself and said Hotsling! Ever since reading this thread that is what we have been calling it at my house (I'm sure the makers of hotslings jsut love this nickname!)

The other day I was wearing my one month old in the Maya Wrap sling and DH was wearing our 20 month old in the EllaRoo wrap sling and, along with our oldest daughter, we went into Hot Topic and the salesman said to us, all the while rolling his eyes, "Those are so popular these days." I replied, "Well, they certainly are handy." and again he says, "Yeah, they are so popular."


the ironic thing is that a man that works at HOT TOPIC said this. Could that place be any more "trendy"? was he wearing black wiht artificially made cuts and saftey pins?? ok sorry being snarky.


I wish I had a ghetto sheet. (speaking of I met a very nice lady in seattle who was wearing a quilt it was very cool and I asked her about it. She probably thought i was stupid though b/c i asked if she was afraid it would come untied. I am going to sling my new baby, my first i just carried not knowing much about slings and not having $$)

and anyone that carries a child over 30 pounds please IM me and tell me how that's working.

Courtney and Cree, baby made 3, added one more then there were 4, sakes alive, then we had 5, another in the mix now we have 6!
